Acting Director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency, the conservator for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, Edward J. DeMarco testifies during a hearing on 'Sustainable Housing Finance' before the House Financial Services Committee in Washington, DC, March 19, 2013.
Regardless of the final outcome of the deliberations on the structure of these GSEs, Fannie and Freddie common shareholders deserve a chance to recover some of the value of their stock ... The common shareholders have been in a financial limbo far too long. It is unfair to punish the common shareholders who have held their Fannie and Freddie stock, in the hopes of recouping some of their losses. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac should be relisted on the NYSE and their conservatorships should, over time, be terminated.
